Baking and freezing!

I made Honey Beer Bread and Poppyseed Bread (without the poppyseeds...) for a Mom's group brunch a few weekends ago...

Sopapillas. DELICIOUS. Will repeat and hopefully freeze...good for breakfast, dessert, or snack - though I prefer breakfast!

(even Mylin loved them!)

My sweet friend, Brittany came and helped me make some food to freeze for baby season this summer!
We made bean burritos, Buffalo Chicken dip, and Baked Spaghetti

I also baked and froze Sour Cream Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

And yummy Chicken Chili Spaghetti in the crock pot
(I used this recipe as a template...ours had chicken, cream of chicken, velveeta, hot chili beans, corn, onion, garlic, spaghetti, and spices)

Oops.  Surprisingly this is only like the 2nd egg I've broken (on accident...) since I've been married - which is odd because I'm clumsy, too fast, unbalanced, and don't really pay 100% attention to much of anything...

Then came the most AMAZING desserts...

Gooey Butterscotch Bars next time I will make this with less of the goo on top - it about sent me over the edge!
And after Joel kissed me when I ate one he swore he got Diabetes... ;)

Cake Batter Brownies - this recipe also calls for these to be frosted...NOT NECESSARY!!!
These are Joel's new favorites!

Wow.  I hope to have at least 1 more day like this to cook, bake, and freeze in preparation of baby coming!
When we had Mylin, we literally had a stockpile of food that lasted us 3 months!
That was with the kindness and generosity of my MomLife group and friends who brought meals - but I am hoping to be ahead of the game again this time around!


  1. Thanks for inviting me to come help! It all looks delish!

  2. I think I'm tired just reading it! Very impressive!

  3. I love Funfetti! They're pretty frosted - but I agree that probably makes them REALLY sweet! :)
